40 - HEALTHY FAMILIES PROGRAM
The Healthy Families Program provides health coverage for eligible children up to age 19 in families with incomes up to 250 percent of the federal poverty level. These children are not eligible for Medi-Cal because of income. The program provides comprehensive health, dental and vision benefits through participating plans. Families pay a monthly premium and the program subsidizes the remaining cost of coverage. Beginning on January 1, 2013, individuals in the Healthy Families Program will be transferred to the Medi-Cal program administered by the Department of Health Care Services.
